Well, here we are posting another pizza! I could be biased, but I always thought pizza is one of the things I do best. I grew up eating pizza and as my Grandpa would tell you I had no problems eating pizza for breakfast or as a midnight snack either! For this pizza we wanted to veganize a classic. This gluten free Italian style pizza features no cheese or sauce. We made it using tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, sea salt, onions, olives, herbs and love. This recipe is the last one of the recipes we are posting for the food blog awards we are participating in. If you are interested in supporting us, click here and then click like to vote for us.

We received an e-mail from a reader requesting a gluten free olive bread similar to the way it is traditionally made in Cyprus. We worked on it and eventually came up with this recipe and we love it! This bread is delicious! This recipe is also one of the recipes we are posting for our food blog awards we are participating in.

I’ve been attempting to make good gluten free vegan pizza crust for a number of years now which has been an adventure to say the least! About a year ago I came up with this fluffy gluten free vegan pizza crust recipe and we really love it! This pizza crust is absolutely delicious when it’s freshly baked so we felt we had to share it on the blog.
I love making pancakes for Athanasia before she wakes up. I actually tried to bring these to her as breakfast in bed but she refuses to eat in the bedroom (smart girl, we wouldn’t want ants)! Recently Boutique Vegan sent us some of these amazing dairy free chocolate chips. We first used some of them in out vegan turtles recipe. Today we used them to make these awesome vegan chocolate chip pancakes!
I don’t think I’ve ever met a cookie I didn’t like; not even tough cookies (you know you’re out there). I felt like enjoying some tasty cookies but I wanted to bend the rules a bit while making a new recipe at the same time. This is always risky business in the kitchen but this time the gamble paid off. I ended up making these amazing buckwheat chocolate chip cookies which are basically a gluten free version of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. As we have said before, it is not easy for us to find rolled oats here but we found and have been using buckwheat flakes for a lot of things instead. I have really grown to love these little buckwheat flakes; they’re great! I also did something bold when it comes to cookies; I used coconut oil instead of vegan butter or margarine and it worked! What can I say? Sometimes that’s just how the cookie crumbles.
Today is Athanasia’s namesake day! Here in Greece they celebrate their namesake much like a birthday with a few differences. It’s traditional to name children after one of their grandparents which results in a continuation of the family names and many days of celebrations each year! Every day of the year is associated with at least one saint or martyr by the Orthodox church and they even have an “All Saint’s Day” in case your name is not one that is celebrated. Ok, now that we have covered some culture, let’s talk chocolate chip banana cake! A few months ago my mom suggested we turn our banana bread into one with chocolate chips. This, of course, was a great idea! We decided to make a cake instead of another bread so we could have a sweet for Athanasia’s namesake. This cake is delicious!
We wanted to make delicious Christmas cookies this year but not necessarily traditional holiday cookies. We had discussed several options before deciding to make gluten free vegan rocky road cookies. I am very happy we decided on these cookies as they are the most scrumtrulescent cookies I have ever made!
No Christmas is complete without a meatloaf, right? We have made a delicious gluten free vegan meatloaf we want to share with our readers this holiday season! This delicious vegan loaf primarily consists of walnuts and portobello mushrooms. While it was in the oven, I could not believe how amazing it’s aroma was! I knew it was going to be tasty and it sure did not let us down in that department! This was one of those recipes I was not entirely sure would work on my first attempt, however, it turned out great. We hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did! Happy Holidays!
I loved pecan pie before I became vegan. Every holiday meal at Grandpa & Grandma’s featured a choice of pecan pie or pumpkin pie for dessert. I will always remember walking into their warm house from the bitter cold November Minnesota weather every Thanksgiving. We were always greeted at the door by the warm smiles of my Grandparents and the unforgettable aroma of my Grandma’s amazing cooking. I am still trying to figure out how any of us ever had any room left in our bellies for dessert! Yet, there always seemed to be just enough room left for a slice of pie. I love pumpkin pie as much as anybody possibly could but I always chose pecan pie because I liked it just a little bit more. I told Athanasia I wanted to veganize my favorite pie of all time so we made this delicious gluten free vegan pecan pie. This is how I celebrate my American roots for Thanksgiving here in Greece!
Last year we went on a bit of a sugar frenzy with our recipes so I wanted to do my best to make this recipe delicious without using as much. What? A low sugar gluten free vegan pecan pie? That’s right! The only actual sugar in this entire recipe is a tablespoon in the crust. Also, since it’s a vegan recipe it obviously has no eggs in it either! Here is how I did it: Continue reading Gluten Free Vegan Pecan Pie
It should be no secret to our readers by now how much I love pizza. I had developed this recipe for a gluten free vegan Italian pizza crust right before our raw vegan challenge and it was one of the last things we ate before the challenge. We both loved it and so I wanted to make it again. A good Italian pizza crust has to have the right blend of herbs in it or else it will either lack flavor or be too overpowering.
